N2 - For a closed codimension one submanifold Γ of a compact manifold M, let MΓ be the manifold with boundary obtained by cutting M along Γ. Let A be an elliptic differential operator on M and B and C be two complementary boundary conditions on Γ. If (A, B) is an elliptic boundary valued problem on MΓ, then one defines an elliptic pseudodifferential operator R of Neumann type on Γ and prove the following factorization formula for the ζ-regularized determinants: DetA Det(A, B) = KDetR, with K a local quantity depending only on the jets of the symbols of A, B and C along Γ. The particular case when M has dimension 2, A is the Laplace-Beltrami operator, and B resp. C is the Dirichlet resp. Neumann boundary condition is considered.
